The book also addresses his involvement in politics, offering fresh perspectives on what can be gleaned of his political thinking from his work and engagement.
Review Quotes
Dr Claire Williams, University of Oxford
“This volume of essaysrepresents a welcome reappraisal of the works of a Brazilian writer whose innovative portrayals of poverty, social inequality, small-town life and economic migration are still surprising and relevant, more than fifty years after they were first published.”
M. M. Lisboa, University of Cambridge
“Not before time, a collection of essays by some of the best-known scholars in Brazilian Studies, writing about one of Brazil’s greatest writers. A valuable addition to Graciliano Ramos’s bibliography in English or any language, for academics and students alike.”
